Spring Concert Music #3

Since last night was a rehearsal night, I want to share some music with you today. This is by George Friderick Handel (1685-1759), so it is from the Baroque period of music. We performed Movements 6&7 of this for our concert last spring. That section starts at minute 12:05 in the recording. Movement 7 is particularly fun to sing, as you will see. (Or should I say, hear.)

O Sing Unto the Lord, Chandon Anthem No. 4, by George Friderick Handel

PS: The choir in this recording is about the same size we are when both of our adult choirs are combined.

PPS: The grid that comes up once the recording is finished gives you several recordings of additional works by Handel.

Enjoy xoxo

My Valentine to You

My husband and I are up in the San Francisco Bay Area for the long weekend visiting our older daughter, son-in-law, and brilliant 15 months old grand baby. I am going to take the long weekend off, but wanted to leave you all with a valentine. Which, of course, is music. This is a piece that we performed last Sunday when our choir sang the Evensong service. It is by Sid Robinovitch, and the words are taken from the Babylonian Talmud. It is music that I feel deep in my soul, it is so hauntingly moving. And for those of you who are observing Shabbat, I hope this music will bring you peace. See you Tuesday.
